Cloudy golden color. Big piny vegetal hop aroma. A little malt in the flavor but the hops are big and bitter. Nice beer but a little on the bitter piny side for me.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear in appearance. Gold in color with a thick, bubbley white head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma consist of a dominant orange zest. Piney with slight banana aromas. Slick texture with low carbonation. Not as hoppy of a taste as i was hoping. Very dry feel. Does leave a slight bitter finish. Overall a drinkable beer.

with a name like this i expect to smell pine but i don’t, resin okay, with some caramel and grassy green. Clear yellow with a green-amber tinge, thin white head. What am i tasting, butter, here’s some pine, syrup without maple, almost camphor deeper in the gullet. A forest-y finish. The palate is confused.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Best by 7/24/15 date.
A: Light amber with a few dancing lines of bubbles. Huge foamy head.
N: Enormous pine, orange, and pineapple. Hint of grapefruit. Earth floor and fall leaves. Cracker base. Hint of lemon.
T: Quite bitter, light malt, cleanly delineated.
M: Medium body, fizzing carbonation that starts with a noticeable prickle and then dies into a soft nothingness. No alcohol presence.
O: A potent IPA whose name is pretty clear about what you’re going to get. Deschutes continues to produce clean, quality beers, and I, for one, am glad for it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Aroma if chalky pine resin. Flavors are dusty and dry, hinting at resin but never quite landing on it. There’s a hint of citrus here too. Finishes as quickly as a water cracker.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is piney, catty, citrus powder drink. Pours clear old gold with a long-sustaining white head. Taste is piney, citrusy, biscuity, starting sweet before a solid but not extreme bitterness sets in. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Portland brewpub - Pours clear gold with a white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit and caramel with a great balance between everything. It is medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavor starts very piney / woody with some grapefruit zest and decent amount of mildly toasted malt that offsets the hoppiness. The finish is resiny and bitter. Quite good.
